AC/DC Front Man Takes The Wheel

Gear head  & Rocker Brian Johnson of AC/DC will be piloting a BMW prototype around the circuit at Daytona Motor Speedway in the Rolex 24 Hour race at the fabled Florida race course January 28-29 to raise money to fight pediatric cancer.  The Highway To Help team of Johnson and his driving partners are looking to collect $1 million dollars for the Austin Hatcher Foundation during the run-up to the big race and a radio-thon being conducted during the race itself.  Johnson, who recently published a book about his favorite cars (story), is no stranger to the cockpit of race cars, having been at the wheel of a Can-Am car and several Historic  Sports car competitions.  He is also expected to drive for Rolex at events being staged at Watkins Glen and the Indianapolis Motor Speedway.
